Iraqi military spokesman says intelligence provided information leading to IS leader whereabouts

CAIRO, Feb 3 (Reuters) – Iraqi military spokesman Yahya Rasool said on Thursday that Iraqi intelligence provided accurate information that led to the whereabouts of Islamic State leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashemi al-Quraishi.

The leader of the militant group died when he blew himself and family members up during a U.S. military raid in Syria, U.S. President Joe Biden said on Thursday, dealing a blow to the jihadist group’s efforts to reorganize as a guerrilla force after losing large swathes of territory.
